Ralph's primary buddy, George Gilmer, also a flying officer, wireless air gunner on Wellington bombers, from Georgetown is alive and well today, living at home with his wife and continuing to drive etc ( @ December 2012). George is nearly 91 years old. I am George's son and was given the middle name of Ralph in memory of Ralph Featherstone.
